Which of these groups are you a member of
I am a member of the DAV. I receive some medicine from the VA, and basic check ups. My wife and I give regularly to the Paralyzed Vets of America. I have a 70% rating. The VA helped me with another degree in Medical Administration, and today, I am working as a clinical associate at an adult day care. It is a very rewarding job.
Although my title was electronics and networking tech for the US Government, the job required a lot of heavy lifting for motors, bearings, putting on belts, etc. It was the totality of the machine. I was well over retirement age, and my heart was in such bad shape, it got to where I could not lift anything. At home, I could not push mow the yard over three or four swipes, walk to the end of the block, or carry boxes to the attic. I had to retire because of not being able to do the job. Shortly after that, I had a nuclear stress test, and they found six blockages, and stints were not able to be used. I was operated on the next day. That has been going on four years ago, and am doing much better.
It is only by the grace of God I am still here, as one of the six blockages was 90% in what is called the "widow maker."
I'm a Platinum Commander's Club level member of the DAV.
